Some were done concurrently (studied
at the same time); basically I joined
several clubs at the same time.
Some were just goofing-off, and were
done at various time-frames (not

I started out in Traditional Styles of
Martial Arts (Karate, TKD, Aikido, Isshin Ryu).
BUT I've always felt something was missing.
Once I get to taste Mixed Martial Arts,
and Jeet Kune Do (Non-Traditional styles),
I will NEVER want to go back to Traditional.
